O. Winston Link, whose thousands of photographs of American railroads and rural culture documented an era, has died at the age of 86. Noah talks to Katherine Dodson, a church organist in Rural Retreat, Va., who was once photographed by Link, playing her organ as the Birmingham Special blew its whistle.
